I could install the buildings plugin successfully.

I have no idea on how to load plugins from outside the manager and
haven't looked into the code. But the plugins could be of any license
and/or could at least have unfree (or at least unbootstrappable)
dependencies. Until we know how to deal correctly with plugins, we
could disable the plugins-manager?
